Pelican State CU Opens In-Hospital Branch
BATON ROUGE, La. – Pelican State CU is building a full service branch on the first floor of E. A. Conway Medical Center in nearby Monroe.
Pelican State, once known as Department of Hospitals CU, has a long standing relationship with the Louisiana State University charity hospital and its 900 employees, with more than half of the employees already members of the credit union.
Pelican negotiated a lease of space with LSU-Monroe to ensure that no tax dollars would be used for the branch. Construction will begin in November and the branch is scheduled to open in the spring.
Conway Medical Center is one of Pelican's largest select groups. Credit union membership is offered as a free addition to the employees' benefit package.
